The small size of Seabourn's ships contributes to a generally sociable atmosphere, but otherwise the line keeps things quiet, completely eschewing the kind of in-your-face, "rah-rah" activities you find on many mainstream ships. Public announcements are few, and, for the most part, passengers are left alone to enjoy conversation and pursue their personal peace. Such organized activities as there are may include trivia contests, galley tours, computer classes, wine tastings, bridge tournaments, exercise classes, and makeover demonstrations. Many cruises feature noted guest lecturers, who might be well-known chefs, scientists, historians, authors, diplomats, wine connoisseurs, and TV directors. Recent-release movies are available for viewing in cabins, and movies are sometimes shown out on deck as well, with popcorn.
All Seabourn ships have retractable watersports marinas that unfold from their stern, allowing passengers direct access to the sea for water-skiing, windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling, banana-boat riding, kayaking, and swimming. It's used, weather and sea conditions permitting, on special "marina days" when at anchor, and during beach parties ashore on select cruises.
